Pediatric Dental Services

Our team is committed to helping your child achieve beautiful, healthy teeth throughout their childhood! We want your child to build a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health.
Preventive Care

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and American Academy of Pediatrics recommends every child see a dentist by the time their first tooth erupts and no later than their first birthday!

We provide routine check-ups, comprehensive exams, fluoride treatments, dental cleanings and dental sealants as a part of pediatric preventive care.

Special Needs Care

We’re known as a practice that proudly caters to the unique requirements of special needs patients. If your child has a developmental disability, including down syndrome or cerebral palsy, behavioral issues or physical limitations, please let us know when booking your appointment. We have special days set aside for children with sensory issues, and we will make sure that we provide extra time for your child’s comfort and your piece of mind.

Tooth Extractions

In some cases, your child may require a tooth extraction to remove a tooth. We understand that tooth extractions can be scary, so we’ll only recommend this option as a last resort. To alleviate any pain or discomfort, we provide local anesthesia (laughing gas) for children with dental anxiety.

Tongue Tie and Lip Tie Revision

Proper development of the tongue and lips are essential for the mouth to function properly. Children who are tongue-tied or lip-tied have a lot of trouble nursing and eating. When a child suffers from tongue-tie and lip-tie, we offer a simple procedure called a revision.

Sedation Dentistry

Your child's safety and comfort is our primary concern! Because young children are naturally apprehensive about dental treatment, we can use nitrous oxide analgesia (happy gas) to minimize anxiety. The more anxious patients may benefit from conscious sedation in the office.

Root Canals

If your child has a tooth root that becomes infected or damaged, he or she may require a root canal treatment. This treatment can be done on a permanent tooth or a baby tooth. A root canal can save your child’s teeth!

Mouth Guards

If your child plays a sport, a mouth guard is essential for protecting their smile! Mouth guards can protect your child from dental injuries, and in some cases, concussions. This form of mouth protection is effective for absorbing impact and stabilizing the child’s jaw.

Digital X-Rays

We use low radiation x-rays to produce digital radiographs! These x-rays use less radiation than traditional radiographs. These are needed to diagnose and treat issues in-between and inside teeth as well as below the gum-line.
